Matcha Cream Daifuku (Green Tea Mochi Dessert Recipe) | Cooking with Dog

Posted by

Hi, I’m Francis, the host of this show “Cooking with Dog.
Today, we are making Daifuku, a mochi dessert stuffed with a sweet filling.
The beautiful color of matcha powder will remind you of young green leaves.
The whipped cream filling also gives it a nice accent.
Let’s prepare the whipped cream filling.
Chill the bowl of heavy cream on ice cubes.
Add the sugar and beat the cream with a hand mixer.
When it reaches a stiff peak stage, clean the beaters.
Spoon the whipped cream into the pastry bag with a nozzle.
Give it a little squeeze to remove the air inside.
Cover a tray with plastic wrap
and squeeze the whipped cream into a round shape.
The cream should be about the size of your thumb.
Place the tray in the freezer to harden the cream.
Alternatively, this frozen cream can be used as a dessert topping.
Now, the cream is completely frozen.
Quickly flatten the anko, red bean paste.
Cover the frozen cream with the anko.
The food preparation gloves
will help to avoid softening the cream.
Store the anko balls in the freezer
while making the mochi wrapper.
Next, dilute the matcha green tea powder with water.
Add a minimal amount of water to dissolve it.
Dust a generous amount of potato starch onto a tray.
We will be dividing very sticky mochi on the surface later.
And now, let’s make the mochi.
Combine the mochiko, sweet rice flour
and granulated sugar in a microwave-safe bowl.
Add the water and thoroughly mix.
Loosely cover the bowl with plastic wrap.
Then, microwave the mixture at 600 watts for 2 minutes.
Remove the plastic wrap.
Lightly wet the inner surface of the bowl with a kitchen brush.
This will help in removing the mochi later.
Thoroughly knead the mixture
with a dampened wooden paddle.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap again.
Microwave the mochi for 1 more minute.
When the mochi begins to look translucent,
stop heating it.
Heating the mochi in 2 steps
will help avoid overcooking.
Wet the inside of the bowl again
and knead the mochi thoroughly.
Add the diluted matcha green tea powder and mix.
Diluting the powder beforehand
will help it combine with the mochi.
When the matcha is distributed evenly,
transfer the mochi to the tray covered with potato starch.
While coating the mochi with the starch,
carefully stretch it into a long oval shape.
Then, tear the mochi into 5 equal pieces.
Now, remove the anko balls from the freezer.
Shape the mochi piece into a flat circle.
The clean even surface should be facing outward.
Place the anko onto the center
and quickly gather the mochi toward the top.
Tightly close the edges of the mochi.
Repeat the process to wrap the rest of the anko balls.
Adjust the shape of the daifuku
and remove the excess potato starch.
Dampen the daifuku with a kitchen brush.
Finally, sprinkle on the matcha powder.
Compared to Shiratamako,
which is another type of sweet rice flour,
Mochiko, regular sweet rice flour easily absorbs water
so it is easy to combine the mixture.
Enjoy the gorgeous matcha daifuku. The combination of the anko and cream is amazing!
Francis, the delicious dessert is ready!
If the mochi dough becomes cool,
it is very difficult to stretch
so wrap the anko balls as soon as possible.
Good luck in the kitchen!

  2. Wait, what? :C I started watching this show in a small local restaurant. I only saw the episodes with dog! I just looked this show up here and found out that something happened to Dog? :C Oh my poor heart… Right in the feels…. I'll keep watching all the episodes anyway, maybe start from the beginning at this point! <3

  3. まだまだシェフの表情がたまに辛そうな時が垣間見れるので、こちらも胸が痛くなります😢

  4. 初めて見させてもらいました!抹茶クリーム大福、とても丁寧に作られていて美味しそう!私も真似して久しぶりにお菓子作りしてみようかな(*´꒳`*)

  5. im so sad rn , francis is gone , after seeing the woman looking at francis and saying that the dessert is ready , i broke down ;-;

  6. I hope they move francis to sitting in the bed (but not really) like an opening that ends with him jumping out of the apron and then sparkles and bam! francis the animated dog sitting in his bed just like it is a blue clues tv show XDDD

  7. This channel suddenly became very sad to watch…I miss Francis, when Chef spoke to the photo I couldn't hold in my tears, thank you for continuing to upload recipes and have Francis appear as a cute little animation.
    I will always support Cooking with Dog.

  8. I try so much to like red bean paste. I love the taste, but the texture of the bean skins is always just too much for me to tolerate.

  9. My condolences to you for your lost loved one. How old was Francis? I know we will miss our feline when he passes on, turned 18 this past June and is starting to show it. 🙁
